A Coldstream dog is two stages away from winning one of the world’s biggest shows.

GCH Red Branch D’Artagnan of the Ring, aka D’Art, an Irish terrier owned by Joy Viel of Coldstream, along with Joe and Elena Metz (who are the breeders), won the Best of Breed competition at the 140th annual Westminster Kennel Club at Madison Square Gardens in New York City Tuesday.

Viel and D’Art are members of the Vernon Kennel Club.

D’Art advances to the terrier group final Tuesday, with a chance to move on to the final Best in Show group later Tuesday night.

Miss P, a beagle from Enderby, won Best in Show in 2015.
